Computer Science: AS-T Degree
The Associate in Science in Computer Science for Transfer Degree is designed for students desiring advanced degrees in Computer Science. Upon completion of this degree (AS-T Computer Science), students will be able to apply standard computer control structures to solve problems and develop algorithms. To fulfill the requirements for this degree, students will complete the IGETC and/or CSU GE-required courses in the area of emphasis and the appropriate general education pattern totaling a minimum of 60 semester transferable units. Students must maintain a minimum overall grade point average of 2.0 and a minimum grade of “C” for each course in the major. A baccalaureate degree is the recommended preparation for those considering professional careers in Computer Science. 1
Program Learning Outcomes
- Demonstrate the use of standard computer control structures to solve problems and develop algorithms.

This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to university or college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a counselor. Students selecting CSU GE breadth rather than IGETC will need more than the minimum 60 units.
To receive an Associate Degree for Transfer, students must complete 60 CSU transferable semester units with a grade point average of at least 2.0, and either the California State University General Education (CSU-GE) or the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) pattern. Consultation with a Counselor is highly encouraged to ensure all requirements are met.
